Turquoise - Brown - Dusty Pink and a big thank you

A wonderful colour combination as start to the New Year at the Play Date Cafe challenge
and thank you so much to the Play Date Cafe team for selecting me in challenge #9 as one of the fab4. This is very special to me.

And this is my entry for challenge #10 - an ATC - just the right size to use some of those scraps I accumulated last year :-)

papers - white plain card, BasicGrey, Cratepaper, some papoer from my stasmh
stamps - digi stamp by Alison Spelman (Stretch'N Bubbles), Little Z
ink - Elzybells
ribbon - from my stash
foam pads

The colours reminded me immediately of some papers I have had for quite a while. It also gave me the chance to use Alison's digi stamp again. I just love this sweet little elephant. This time I turned it into a couple by flipping the image to create the lady as mirror image. I printed the images directly onto the paper and cut them out. Don't they look cute together?
As I had not enough paper to make it A4 (this is what my printer wants) I tricked the printer. I chose a scrap big enough for the image, attached it to a 80g white A4 paper using 'stick it' scrapbooking tape. It was the first time I did this and it worked a treat. The printing went perfectly fine and it was no problem to remove the scrap from the A4 paper.
The little twirly hearts are the result of some 'fuzzy cutting'.
